- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pet dogs and service dogs are priced differently. For pet dogs I charge $100/lesson and $900/week for board and trains. The average length of a board and train is two weeks. This includes pick up and drop off, along with a lesson at drop off. Service dog training is a longer process that includes (often) finding the right dog, obedience, public access training, service dog tasks and education regarding service dog laws. From beginning to end my service dog clients pay $12,000-14,000 over time, depending on the complexity of the tasks the dog needs to learn. I have different payment options for this. I also have a program where I help an owner self train their service dog when they are able. I meet with the client every few weeks to guide the training process, evaluate and solve any training issues.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Generally we have a phone call to discuss what the dog needs to work on and how I can help. We discuss methods the client would like to use and any health issues the dog has. We then schedule the best times available.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
In order to maintain my CPDT-KA certification I have to do 30 hours of continuing education in a three year period. I love to learn new techniques. I also have a biology degree from the University of Virginia and experience working as a veterinary technician. I have apprenticed with wonderful trainers and serve as a mentor for others.
